Why Am I Going So Slow When Life Goes So Fast?
I did just finish a new necklace. I was inspired by some artwork my sister did many years ago, a simply beautiful bouquet of pink poppies. I came up with a short phrase that was meaningful to me: "Like the flowers of the field, I am Wild, Free, and Beautiful." I long for a life with more simplicity and nature has always been what I need to restore my spirit. Sometimes a small bouquet of flowers gives me a lift in my day. Wild and free allows me to be who I am with no permissions or apologies: and Beautiful is how I always want to feel the Inner Me is. Knowing that what I hold inside myself, (without guilt, shame, fear) is positive and goodness, a sense of virtue, is very important to me. I painted the phrase and added it to the back of the pendant. I also machine embroidered it along the ribbon ties. It becomes a wearable reminder and affirmation of purpose and my philosophy for living.
